Lost WiFi while reinstalling wireless printer
by oiptoner - 9/2/11 9:13 AM
Running XP, SP3 on main computer which is hard wired to a Linksys WRT54G router. This system still works.
Have an HP laptop (Vista) and Compaq laptop (XP) which are on a wifi network using the same router. The Vista computer was also connected wirelessly to an HP 6980 inkjet printer. A samsung 7" tablet also uses the same router wirelessly.
Lost the wifi connection between the laptop and the printer and when I tried to reinstall I was asked for network pass code which was rejected. Tried to reinstall printer by "secure easy setup" between printer and router, which may have worked because the correct lights are on, but now I have lost the internet connection for both laptops and tablet, and the Vista laptop still cannot activate the printer. Tried to get help from Linksys and HP, but told out of warranty.
Simple solution may be to recover new password, but don't know how to go about doing that since I do not have Linksys IP addresses nor do I remember the various screens I have to go through. Can someone help?
